Mayor orders police to evacuate as rioters destroy 3rd precinct, 170 businesses
Minneapolis police abandoned the Third Precinct in Minneapolis Thursday night after rioters and looters pillaged and burned for the third night in a row, using the death of George Floyd as an excuse. It was full-out mayhem with the precinct virtually destroyed. They also looted and destroyed 170 businesses, already hurting due to the lockdown.
More than 170 businesses damaged or looted. Dozens of fires. Thankfully, no reports of serious injuries. Calm on the horizon.
Democrat Mayor Jacob Frey told reporters that he made the decision “to evacuate the Third Precinct.”
“I made the decision to evacuate the Third Precinct,” Frey said. “The symbolism of a building cannot outweigh the importance of life, of our officers or the public. Brick and mortar is not as important as life.”
What does it say when the police can’t even protect themselves? It’s a weakness.
George Floyd’s death was a travesty, but that does not give rioters the right to burn down the city. These people are criminals.
To make it worse, vicious Al Sharpton is heading to Minneapolis to stir the pot. The media has been completely dishonest, except for Fox News. They are calling the rioters, ‘protesters.’ Ali Velshi on MSNBC falsely claimed this morning that the rioters are mostly peaceful as a building went up in flames behind him.
This is shameful. The police were kept from putting up any defense. Minneapolis looks like Kabul.
